On Communication

Sep 28, 2005 by

I am thinking about one of the experiences I had last weekend at Weird Shift. Jan and Chris and I had the final closing presentation, and we had met earlier in the month to go over the details.

We also sat together right before the presentation and reviewed it one more time.

Now how is it that what came out of my mouth for instructions were not what was said to me and was also not what was heard by the group?

I have always considered myself to be a good communicator. I can stand on my feet and talk and people, for the most part understand what I am saying.

But it is so weird to me that I totally missed what Jan had said to me, and that the group (some in particular) totally missed what I did say.

Weird.

I’m gonna have to think about this some more.
